REVIEW ~ (Mis)fortune by Melissa Haag

Our world is being judged and even they remain unaware.
Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.
After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one who can protect her… unless she can find someone just like him.
Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part strives to keep her safe. The second book of the Judgement of the Six series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?

Emmitt is a twenty-five year old werewolf who has found his mate in Michelle and protects her from all the other werewolves wanting to scent her.  He also has to protect her against a new werewolf pack wanting to use her for her special abilities that she doesn't even know the full extent of herself.  If human men were this kind and caring and protective in real life the world would be a much better place.
Michelle is a nineteen-year old woman who escapes her home's imprisonment after her stepfather is killed.  She takes her two small brothers and flees only to run into Emmitt who discovers she's his mate.  She's creeped out of course by this strange person wanting to help her & her brothers but grows to trust him implicitly and ends up "claiming" him in the end.  Her special abilities are seeing the stock market and seeing visions of her "sisters" with special abilities.  
Finishing this book made me anxious about wanting to continue reading the series without any breaks. There's a lot of action, sexual frustration and trust issues but it all comes together in an abrupt end leaving you wanting more.  This is the second book in Melissa Haag's Judgement of the Six series and although I liked the new main characters, Emmitt and Michelle, I loved Gabby and Clay more from the 1st book.
